CHARLESTON, SC Feb. 14, 2013 – The College of Charleston women’s tennis team will host Kansas and North Carolina State this weekend at the College of Charleston Tennis Center at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
The Cougars (2-1) will start off the weekend with a non-conference dual match with Kansas on Saturday, February 16 at 10 a.m. (ET). CofC last competed three weeks ago and is coming off a 4-2 win over Wisconsin in the consolation match of theITA Kick-Off Weekend national indoor qualifier hosted by Duke University.
Meanwhile, the Jayhawks (2-1) are making their first road trip of the season traveling to the Lowcountry for a pair ofmatches against CofC and Charleston Southern.
“Kansas will be a great challenge,” CofC Director of Tennis Angelo Anastopoulo said. “They are a very solid team out of the Big 12. We don’t know too much about them as this is the first time we’ve played them in program history. It has been tough to prepare with all of the rain this week, but hopefully, that won’t be a problem this weekend. It has been a while since our last home match and we’re looking forward to seeing our fans come out and support our team.”
After Saturday’s match, the Cougars will have a quick one-day turnaround before playing host to another BCS opponent inNC State out of the ACC on Sunday, Feb. 17 at noon (ET) at Patriots Point.
